posted 29 May 2011, 12:49 by Bart Barrins
The team suffered their third loss of the year when at windswept Corballa on Sunday the visitors St.Pats finished strongly to emerge victorious. Playing against the wind in the first half we were down 1-1 after 2 minutes but strong play from Kevin Langan brought us back into it. However the team ran out of luck when missing a number of good goal scoring chances throughout the half. At the half time whistle Frank Barrett scored the equaliser after another lucky escape at the Pats goal.
The half time score was 0-8 v 1-5.
 
Just like the first half, we managed to give the visitors a head start of 4 points when conceding 1-1 in the first 2 minutes of the half. But like the first half we played our way back into the game and took the lead following points from Paul Kilcullen and David Carrabine. Just after this we missed two excellent goal chances with neither forcing the keeper to make a save. The superior fitness of the visitors told as they scored a number of points in the last few minutes to win by 2, 2-11 v 0-15.
